In a world where we're all supposed to be doing something, appearances are king.
Hi wa mata noboru onlyAlso I have a plurk now, so feel free to friend me there and stuff.
Lesson 690: No matter what you're doing, it's looks that matter.
(Top text- Volume 74 will be in stores everywhere on August 3rd!!)
(Side text- Something has happened...!!)
(Under panel: The TV anime “Gintama: Silver Soul Arc” airs late night Sunday at 1:35 am on TV Tokyo and it's affiliates!!//The second ship in muddy waters disembarks!! The Live action “Gintama 2” will be in theaters Friday August 17th!!)
(Sfx- Kakaatsuhhh kasheeeeeen)
???: This is the current state of affairs.
The origin of that blast...
And the scale of the damage it caused is unknown.
Both possibilities of an accident and an act of terror are being considered.
???: All people in the vicinity of the terminal should make haste to evacuate the area quickly,
the Government has provided refuge shelters for this purpose.
(Sfx- Waaaah!!! Kyaaaah!!)
Thank goodness you're okay!!
I am sorry.
I pursued him...
with all of my might.
(Sfx- Suha suah hah hah)
(Sfx- Doogohhh whooomph)
Kagura: But he really was just some creepy pervert, uh-huh.
And he just grabbed me all of a sudden so I kicked him hard enough to cross the universe, yup.
Y'think he might have been trying to cover you from the blast, maybe?
Kagura: Eh? Why? Why would a panty thief go so far? That guy sure was covered by something, I'll tell you what.
Shinpachi: That aside, I'm pretty sure I saw a specter that looked really similar to Gin-san.
...you don't think..
Kagura: Moving on to more important things, what is with the noise?
What happened over there?
???: This only happened cause you people had to be so damn slow.
What's that supposed to mean?!
You're not saying that Gin-san is involved with this commotion are you?
Okita: ...Well, that's not wrong per se.
But right now I'm referring to that.
If you guys had teamed up with us we'd have ended this nice and quick like.
Rather than having our prey snatched right out from under us.
News Caster: Breaking news!!
Prime Minster Donald Zurump's villa...
Was recently attacked by the anti government militia Shiren!
The Shiren group has already been apprehended by the guards there, however...
News Caster: Mr. Zurump was injured during the exchange with the Shiren group..
And has died.
Once again, Prime Minister Donald Zurump has...
been assassinated by an anti government group.
The government has declared both the successful attempt on Mr. Zurump's life and the act of terrorism on the terminal to be simultaneous premeditated attacks by the same orgainzation.
Shinpachi: Katsura-san is...
T—that can't be, right?
I mean he'd never be killed so easily...
Okita: T'weren't some anti government militia that killed him..
Okita: I got the camera footage using some underhanded methods...
And it's as clear as day who's behind this.
It's as if...
The guy wanted us to see...
What he had done.
Takasugi: 'Sup? You're late.
Did you say goodbye to all of your little friends?
Hope you did...
Have a look down there –it might be the last time we get to see a festival in Edo like this.
(Sfx- jakiiinn clack)
The hell did you do?
Just what is all of this?
Takasugi: The church's next target is the altana of Earth.
If they want to revive Utsuro's body and create immortality...
Then they need either the heart you have or a large quantities of Earth's altana.
I'd assume they're a bit surprised by this turn of events.
Takasugi: The terminal that they were coming after...
got fragged by a random act of terrorism.
Beyond that the country that protects that terminal...
is in a state of chaos now that it's center has been taken.
They're impatient, and this is a great little opening I've given them...
One so sweet that even fake Gods will have to step off their thrones...
and come down here to seize it.
Gintoki: And you...
as bait for this?
going to save an existence that could bring down the world around it.
still unclear as to what that means?
(Sfx- Dodooouhhh fwhoooom.)
(Sfx- Dooohhh fwhooom)
(Sfx- dogooooh gagooohhh fwhooooom)
(Sfx- Doouhhhh fwhooom)
Takasugi: It seems to me...
Aren't suited to...
Be the one who carries that.
(Sfx- Piki piki crack crack)
(Sfx- Gaaaann whooom)
Takasugi: No worries, I'll put it to good use in your stead.
(Sfx- Dattsh dash)
(Sfx- Dooohh whoom)
???: It'd be a shame to allow you all of the spotlight.
(Sfx- Zazaaaahh fwaaap)
???: Blowing up the terminal...
And slaying the Prime Minister of a country....
Do you think that this is the work of merely one terroist....
The ones who could pull such a feat off...
are either the Prime Minister or...
I, the Joui Patriot Katsura Kotaro.
